ear Editor:

Elmer and I were so excited to see in the Grant paper– “The Avi8ors” are coming to the Grant Airport June 27.

The three women and one gentleman duplicate World War II USO entertainment, in the dress and wonderful songs of the era. They are just out of this world. Don’t miss this great day.

They were on the first Heartland Honor Flight of World War II veterans to Washington D.C. May 28, 2008 that Elmer and Vernon Mailand had the privilege to enjoy. That evening when the plane returned, The Avi8ors graciously mingled among the veterans and their families, such fun.

We have seen them at the Strategic Air and Space Museum Sept. 2008 and at the reunion of all Heartland Flights of World War II veterans to Washington DC in Omaha in May of 2009.

Don’t miss this presentation, everyone would enjoy their talent.
